It has been a while since I posted from my travel diaries. It is only fair to begin with the most recent trip to the second smallest state of India – Sikkim:) . This is going to be a long series 🙂
Arguably one of the most picturesque states of India , Sikkim is enchanting . The mighty Kangchenjunga , breathtaking waterfalls , rare wildlife, quaint monasteries and verdant hills make this a perfect escape for those seeking a non-touristy experience . Gangtok , the capital and largest town of Sikkim , is the most visited place and ridiculously crowded . What a relief it was to dodge the multitudes thronging the Ganesh tok temple and visit the Himalayan Zoological Park, across the road, to see the state animal of Sikkim , the red pandas !
These reddish-brown furry creatures are delightful to watch. The park has a breeding centre for these endangered animals too . Meet the red pandas !
